For me, Firefox is hands down THE BEST BROWSER by far on android. I find it quicker and smoother than Chrome (my previous pick.) But it has 2 big pluses: text wrap to zoom and flash support.

It's still in beta but it's so darn smooth you'd never know.

I liked Firefox for Android, but I really don't know which is the best. It's a shame Mozilla won't port Firefox to iOS.

I also use FireFox Beta. It also handles flash the best. Plus I use Firefox on my desktop which syncs tabs, bookmarks, and passwords flawless.

I dislike Chrome on anything Android and even the iPhone. But I like it on my iPad.

I have become a fan of boat browser. I tried Chrome, Opera, Dolphin, and Firefox but really wasn't a huge fan of any of them.

Aosp browser is good.

But dolphin is far more flexible. I like both.

Chrome looks strange with its grey shades, like gmail *shrugs*

I've tried different browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Marathon) but I keep coming back to Dolphin browser.

I use Chrome because I use all Google services pretty heavily. It does seem pretty darn slow to load up even simple pages though. May give Firefox another look.

On Jelly Bean I prefer Chrome Beta and when using flash I use Firefox.

On Ice Cream Sandwich I prefer ICS Browser+ its like Chrome Beta with flash support.

I use Firefox for Android because I use Firefox on my desktop.
I'd prefer to use Chrome because it links all my Google services, but the lack of a 64-bit version of Chrome for PCs forces me to use Firefox, but IMO Firefox for Android is better than Chrome.
But I'd probably use Chrome on my Android if there was 64-bit Chrome for my PC, but until then I'm sticking with Firefox.

I use Chrome on my iphone 5 mainly because it syncs between ipad, iphone, home and work desktops. Like dolphin but since there is no desktop version I don't use it.

while the stock and Chrome are pretty good, Opera is also really good. It's kind of underrated actually.

Firefox was a memory hog on desktop, same in mobile.
